  1. Or just sit slightly to the right of center. It's all in what you're used to. Never having played games, I didn't come to SL even knowing that WASD was an option until I was well set in my current way of doing things. No magic, just habits.
  2. That's an interesting hypothesis. I suppose a left-handed mouse could make more sense to those of us who use the arrow keys, but that never occurred to me. I use my right hand for the mouse and my left hand on the arrow keys and for CTRL/Shift/Alt. I have no idea why. It just seems natural, which means that in my case your hypothesis doesn't work. I suppose if I played games, I might have brought different habits to SL, but I don't, so I didn't.
  3. This ^^ WASD is way too confusing and inconvenient.
  4. That's been true for a long time. The tech companies there and to the south seem to attract DDoS idiots. They can mess up SL unexpectedly several times a month. FWIW, I haven't seen any change in my own FPS or any increase in the number of difficult TPs recently. It sounds like random bits of bad luck are being scattered among SL residents.
  5. Well, that stinks. It's one more good reason to avoid facebook. Thanks.
  6. That would be truly annoying. Where do you find people who do that? I must lead a charmed life (or maybe I am already stunningly perfect?), but I've never had anyone feed me a line like that. Not that I would do anything but ignore that sort of twit and walk on by ...... 🙄
  7. Pile rocks along it, or maybe put bushes and your picnic table over it? Damn OSHA! Full speed ahead!
  8. Todos somos residentes de SL aquí, como usted. No somos Lindens, por lo que no podemos analizar su cuenta y, por cierto, no podemos hacer nada para ayudarlo a resolver su problema. Deberá enviar un caso de soporte para hacer su pregunta.
  9. Mostly, I write off line and test/update in world wherever it's convenient. I have my own region, but I'll script anywhere.
  10. Thank you. I do appreciate your kind thought. I'm glad that your problem worked out, and I know Lindal and I are both glad that we no longer need to offer the advice about PayPal that has been part of the toolbox for many years. Enjoy the rest of the week. 😉
  11. Think about where you put that switch.... Do you really want it to switch every time you click on any button?
  12. I sense an impending demand for extension cords...... 😁 And buckets ....
  13. Oh, so you found the typo? is clearly meant to be iOwner_only_flag = !iOwner_only_flag; A simple toggle switch. Good catch.
  14. if ( llGetLinkName(llDetectedLinkNumber(0)) == "Button 1" ) { iOwner_only_flag = !Owner_only_flag; } Then when someone clicks to operate the device, check if ( (iOwner_only_flag && llDetectedKey(0) == llGetOwner() } || !Owner_only_flag)) // do stuff
  15. I doubt that you will be able to attract a scripter to write something like that for as little as L$1000. That's about $4 US, enough to pay for maybe 20 minutes of a scripter's time. You might try asking in the InWorld Employment forum, though, or see what's available in script libraries in world or on the web that might be adapted. The Scripting Forum is not the place to look.
  16. Congratulations, and thank you, Lindal. That must be a very recent change, and it's a welcome one. As recently as this past spring, people who had asked about this in the Answers forum were still telling me that their transactions only went through after they put money in their PayPal account, as you and I had been advising them for years. If Linden Lab's accounting system has improved, this is great news. As I tried explaining to the OP, this has been a difference between the way that PayPal worked for SL and the way it worked anywhere else in the Internet. It made no difference whether you could buy peanut butter from Amazon.com with your zero balance PayPal account. Linden Lab wouldn't let you. So now ... Progress!
  17. As soon as my horse heard that there were new lands to explore in the south of Bellisseria, he was eager to go exploring. So was I. Like most visitors in these new regions, we arrived at Campwich station. The sun was already high in the sky and there was a fresh breeze blowing from the west. My horse isn't much for indoor life, so instead of staying to see what's in Campwich Lodge we took a hint from the wind and headed over the hills into Wolfington. We detoured briefly into Placid and Arvee, sticking mostly to dirt roads at first to be sure that we didn't wander into someone's camping area by mistake. The trouble with these roads, though, is that they have lots of bridges, and bridges with open timber make my horse nervous. There's enough space between them to make crossing treacherous. I didn't want to take a chance that he'd break a leg. He didn't like the train tracks, either. Rather than court disaster, therefore, we headed cross country. There's plenty of open land between the campers, as it turns out, and it's beautiful. We forded streams and climbed up on ridges to get a better view, still headed roughly west-southwest through Purtis. Here in Quitman, I swear that I saw a wolf dash off through the underbrush. I wish I hadn't forgotten my binoculars. I'm terrible at spotting birds without them. I heard songbirds in the trees all along our journey, but I never spotted a single one. It didn't take long to discover that some of the prettiest land in these new regions is along streams. Everywhere you look, there are narrow rivulets and cascading brooks. I'm afraid we actually got lost for a while as we wandered up one after another. Before we knew it, we were in Proctor, not having actually covered much distance but having spent most of the afternoon. There's an absolutely magnificent cascade there, with a shallow plunge pool where I was very tempted to take a dip. We were still too close to camping trailers, though, and I didn't have anything to change into. Maybe another day. Even late in the day, the sun was hot and both of us were thirsty and tired. We picked our way slowly downstream, walking gingerly on the rocks and stopping every once in a while so that he could drink a little water. All in all, it was a gorgeous afternoon. We didn't really make it as far as I had planned, but that's OK. Some days are meant for wandering and others for being lazy. There will be plenty of time to come back and explore further. At least we got as far as Proctor.
  18. That would usually be my advice too. I have a sense that the OP is willing to experiment, though, and I was hoping to nudge in that direction. A blinking light is a nice place to start learning.
  19. Nope. What I gave you was llSetLinkPrimitiveParamsFast(LINK_SET,[34,2,PRIM_FULLBRIGHT, ALL_SIDES, iON, PRIM_GLOW, ALL_SIDES, 0.05*iON, 34,1,PRIM_FULLBRIGHT, ALL_SIDES, !iON, PRIM_GLOW, ALL_SIDES, 0.05*!iON]);
  20. And did you try it? Substitute the existing lines of code with that one. Wait... That's not what I gave you as a substitute. Look again.
  21. Yes. Substitute: llSetLinkPrimitiveParamsFast(LINK_SET,[34,link_number_of_the_star,PRIM_FULLBRIGHT, ALL_SIDES, iON, PRIM_GLOW, ALL_SIDES, 0.05*iON, 34,link_number_of_the_heart,PRIM_FULLBRIGHT, ALL_SIDES, !iON, PRIM_GLOW, ALL_SIDES, 0.05*!iON]); I encourage you to keep on playing with it to see what you can do by adding some extras cautiously. Study a couple of basic tutorials to get yourself started. We all started this way at some point. As long as you have a script that already works, you know that you can toss your experiments if they don't work the first time. Be bold.
